The closing ceremony of the 2023 World Scout Jamboree and the K-pop Super Live concert were held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 11th, causing concern as the grass was damaged. In response, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST) promised to restore the grass.
“We have budgeted for the restoration of the stadium since the planning stage of the concert and will do our best to support the restoration,” the ministry said in a press release on the 13th.
The ministry explained that it is starting an emergency recovery effort. “As soon as the demolition of concert-related facilities such as the stage is completed, the Seoul Facilities Corporation will closely examine the ground conditions and begin emergency repairs such as replanting the dedicated grass,” the ministry said.
The ministry said it would cooperate with FC Seoul and the Seoul Facilities Corporation. “We will work with FC Seoul, which uses the Seoul World Cup Stadium as its home stadium, and the Seoul Facilities Corporation to restore the stadium to its original condition as soon as possible,” the ministry said.
The clarification comes in the wake of a protest by FC Seoul’s official supporters, Suho Shin, on the club’s official Instagram page on Oct. 10.
They were concerned that the Seoul World Cup Stadium was chosen as the venue for the jamboree. “Tomorrow’s closing ceremony has become another wound for us,” they said, adding, “I don’t think there is anything we can do to change now that so much ‘voluntary cooperation’ has already been forced upon not only us, but also private organizations such as companies and universities, beyond public corporations and public organizations, through one-sided communication.”
The guardian asked the jamboree participants not to damage the grass, saying, “Our stadium has become a performance venue, just as many places have been transformed into your camping grounds.” “Please enjoy your time at the Sangam World Cup Stadium, the place where we draw our dreams, but we respectfully ask you to use it as carefully as possible,” he said.메이저사이트
